This week’s Easter Bunny is dressed up as Ron Sexsmith. His 17th studio album
is called The Vivian Line.
As always Ron is very transparent in his writing and life in general.
I think he still marvels at the life he’s lead and the career he’s hand-built.
The Vivian Line is a rural road that winds its way out of Toronto and slowly leads to his new home in Stratford. The change in his lifestyle is reflected in these songs.
What I had in mind is Ron in grade school having second thoughts about fitting it.
The oldest song is the best I think. Diamond Wave. It just took years for all the pieces to fit.
Ron says when he first started to sing When our love was new on stage he ended up crying his way through.
He channels Leonard Cohen on the final track Ever Wonder.
Lots of stories and dry humour from a country gentleman Ron Sexsmith.

Video Ron on tdm youtube channel.
